Beth Johnson looked over room after room at the Sound Conservatory’s new location in downtown Moline on Friday afternoon, Nov. 17. Ms. Johnson recalled how the Sound Conservatory got its start in downtown Rock Island and wishes it could still be in that community. But she loves the look of its new home at 504 17th St., in what was the Carnegie Library building and former Moline Public Library.

- A Jupiter alto saxophone with its case for $599, plus tax.
- A Conn 1000B Student Trumpet with hard case for $590.
- A section filled with 16 pianos, ranging from a Kohler & Campbell Baby Grand to a Kawai Model 503F. (Those models and many others are listed for sale at the company’s website here.)
- There are also drums, drum sticks, guitars, sheet music piano lesson books and even Sound Conservatory T-shirts.
- The building is also filled with signs and decorations in support of the music world. A sign on the first floor, next to the pianos, states: “My neighbors listen to good music, whether they like it or not.” A sign on the second floor has the question: “Did you touch my drum set?” (That’s one of the standout lines from the movie “Step Brothers.”)
